Fasting Queen

(parody of "Dancing Queen" by Abba)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: a song about an underage girl who teases boys to "leave them burning" is crying out for some better words. This one is about Queen Esther.


Take a chance, you could die, or you could save all our lives.
Be that girl, the one we need, bein' the fasting queen.

Full of fright and your life might go.
Looking out for your people, though.
Will Haman kill the Jews if, hate is in full swing?
You need to move toward the king.

Everybody knows you might die.
Uncle says that you have to try.
God will save all the Jews if, you will not be tryin'.
You're not the queen by chance.
You need to take a stand.

Chorus:
You are the fasting queen, pray, don't eat, God will intervene.
Fasting queen, see the need, break the king's routine.
You can ask Mordechai — "That's why you are the king's wife."
Be that girl, the one we need, bein' the fasting queen.

If you please him, he'll bring you on.
If it's turning out bad, you're gone.
Looking out for your brothers, no one else will do.
You're not the queen by chance.
Are there some higher plans?

chorus
Bein' the fasting queen.
